Hey there! 🌴

Over the past few days, I’ve been attending the Art Basel and multiple crypto and generative art side events in Miami Beach.

Here is a glance at what’s happening here.

Art Basel attracts over 250 of the world’s leading galleries in one place. The gallery area is massive; you probably need many hours to walk around and see everything in detail.

The first hours are reserved for top collectors, who use this time to make big purchases. I heard someone spent $2.5M in the first two hours of the first day.

Untitled by Keith Haring (1978).

If you spend time walking around, you can spot masters like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Banksy, and Jesus Soto.

Tezos + FxHash had a fantastic booth designed to showcase generative art and the multiple innovations:

  • Minting experience.

  • Artwork traits, rarities, and randomization.

  • Learning material to help newcomers understand generative art and art on the blockchain.

Besides the leading fair, events are happening every day. I am impressed by the number of exhibitions, galleries, gatherings, talks, and parties around crypto and generative art.

If you plan to visit Art Basel Miami Beach in the future:

  • Make a list of events and make sure you have set up your mobile wallet or QR token ready. NFTs are your entrance ticket to many of these events.

  • The Uber situation is crazy as everyone moves around Miami Beach (and sometimes around Miami) to get to the next event. Not sure if there is a solution, but expect traffic and expensive drives.
